A Buddhist temple by the sea side, I feel as though I, too will be free of petty worries and worldly pleasures if I lived here as a nun.
Most temples are actually built on mountains or hidden deep in them. Haedong Yonggungsa is an anomaly in this sense.
I really, really love how Busan has the perfect outdoor spots for a good hike or walk. People who know me will know that I enjoy a good hike; that even if my current hibernating state, I am undaunted when faced with a good flight of stairs – or slope. Taejongdae in Busan, Korea is such a venue. With its steady stream of slopes around the park and flight of stairs down to the lighthouse – I was secretly thrilled and enjoying every moment.
